Did you win or did the other shooter?

Your in a club shoot, (members only) a member sneaks a guest in and your in a shoot off with this guest. The quest breaks 100 you break 99 do you tell the judges/ administrators the person you lost to isn't a member and has not right to the prize (Trophy and $$)or do you let the quest take the prizes and consider your beaten?

Pat is right of course but this would be an opportunity for you to get a new member into the club. Let the guy know that you are aware of his non member status and in a gesture of good faith, he should take his cash winnings and put it toward a membership and square things with the club. This way you don't have to be the bad looser.

If it's a member only shoot where is the question?

On the other hand give him a big atta boy, shake his hand and sign him up so that he can legitimately win at the next event. The $$$ goes to the high club member.

Rules, what a waste of time if they are not going to be adhered to ... Then why bother having them ..? Play by the rules to the letter and you'll never be labeled a cheat ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

Whoever was responsible for signups and squadding should know who is and isn't a member. I suppose at some large clubs that might not be the case, but if its a members only shoot everyone should have to show their card in order to shoot. I'm all for encouraging new shooters and trying to recruit new club members, BUT, both the member who sneaked him in and the shooter were knowingly cheating at a club event. Are these the type of people you really want in your club?

I don't think we established that the non member is in fact a liar and a scum. Probably just a guy that thought he was invited to a shoot. Anyway here is a chance to make an honest man out of him ......

I guess I don't really understand the problem, perhaps a good ol' tar and featherin is in order. I wonder if the issue would have been brought up if the guy didn't shoot well.

It really doesn't matter what you do at that point because if you knew before the shoot/shoot off started then the damage to the club and the sport has already been done.
